    Hi there:

    thank you for your replies in advance,
    here is the situation:

    I have two routers from Asus. RT-N66U, RT-N16. Both are running Tomato firmware.

    Here is how I setup it up:

    RT-N66U acts as the primary one, connects to the modem. (IP SEG: 192.168.1.X)
    RT-N16 ( acts as secondary, connects WAN port to one of the LAN port from RT-N66U. (IP SEG: 192.168.2.X)

    I have web access enabled on both.

    In one of my computer connects to RT-N66U, I can access to without problem, but I cant access to RT-N16( but I can access it with remote WEB access with port 12345(which I assigned). even with or http://xxxxxxx.org:12345.

    any idea?

    The Router IP has to be in the same subnet as the rest of the router.
    So your RT-N16 configuration isn't right.

    Guess you will either have to put the RT-N16 in Switch mode (turn DHCP off and work with VLANs on the RT-N66U), or put it in its own subnet (RT-N16 IP will be on IP SEG 192.168.2.x).
    At this moment you are mixing up two subnets...

    no this is right setup, I use that for creating a new wireless network, the wan IP for the secondary is, subnet

    I can do the samething with the stock software from Asus, but not the tomato.

    i think it maybe from the firewall. but i can find anything seems to be related.

    You just want a new (second) wireless network? Can't you accomplish this with VLAN and a Virtual Wireless Interface? That way you don't even need a second router.

    What's the reason for needing the second wifi, RT-N16? To boost the signal or to isolate the network.

    I agree with the others that you maybe able to accomplish this by using VLANs and you maybe mixing your terminology or understanding of the segment setup. Please clarify the IP address of the WAN / LAN of both Routers. From my understanding, things from the WAN cannot access thing on the LAN without opening up the firewall or changing it from gateway mode to router mode.
